Don't really have any plans but a ride sounds fun. Would probably go to RRMT as a default, but could go somewhere else if there was a group going. Yes...it's a bit cold. But I'm fat so it doesn't bother me much.

Intermediate rider, prefer spirited pace but don't mind riding slower as long as we can exert enough energy to stay warm.

My guess is Time to Ride will still be pretty muddy. That black gumbo doesn't handle rain as well as the sand at RRMT. As such, I'd prefer Red River. You thinking tomorrow or Tuesday? My preference is probably Tuesday as it will allow more time to "build" a group and @GLFlyer is a maybe for Tuesday if we get his bike fixed on Monday. The bad is that Tuesday would appear to be about 4 degrees cooler than tomorrow. High of 37 vs. 41. It's cold either way....but high 30's is starting to get to my limit.

I'm thinking Tuesday would be members only. Not sure about that, as their website is down.

We've got 4 possibles for Tuesday so I'm tempted to try for it.

But...forecast says sunny and high of 36. Sunny part sounds good, high of 36 is pretty cold.

You guys still want to try for it? It will probably be around 32 when we start riding in the morning and we'll be breaking ice in puddles on the trail. Could be an Adventure... but would be a cold one.

Alternatively...we wait for a warmer day. Saturday the 5th has a forecasted high of 56. That sounds quite a bit more pleasant to ride in.

Thoughts?

How about turning it into a camp out, meet on the 4th Friday? You talking about red river or ttr?

Weather looks perfect for red river

Might consider camping at RRMT on Friday night. Camp in my trailer and ride Saturday. Bring my grill and cook some hamburgers.

Forecast is creeping into the 60s, now.
Cinch it up, Doug. I don't want to be the FSG ...

Red River is members only for Friday night admission. If you want to camp and are not a member, it's easier to camp Saturday night. (Or you'll need to have a member get you in on Friday.

Membership isn't a bad deal, but only makes financial sense if you go at least 5 or more times a year.

I am not a member. I still am planning on riding Saturday the 5th, but I have family plans that night so i won't be camping.

Kevin.....let me know where when you get there. I may join you. Will be car camping though as I don't want to try and ride the WR there.

I'm planning on being at Red River Motorcycle Trails around 9AM on Saturday morning. I'll try to get a spot down by the river in the middle camping area. I'll post what vehicle I'm in as it gets closer. Not sure if it will be a truck or SUV with a trailer.

If all the maybe and yes responses turn into participants, it looks like we'll have 5 or 6.

Dave, I will be there around 3ish. Since your bringing your car, can you pack some firewood? I think one other is coming as well.
